“NEW LIFE NEW HOPE NEW WORDS!” a poem of refine-ation! October 29, 2018 – Moon Day
Our Jack* has REALLY been through “stuff,
And Life may NEVER say: “Enough!!”
The Net Effect? Well, who can tell!?
After folks have been through Hell!
Jack did-visit-(Hell) for a season;
Who can really give a reason,
But, let’s assume “a noble spin,”
And that, perhaps, our Jack can win!
Some-folks see Jack as really “scarred,”
Marked for life – and scars are hard!
Yet, maybe “scarred” could be replaced:
“REFINED!” suggests that he’s been graced!
GOOD CHANGE – THROUGH HARDSHIP – Let’s ASSUME,
That – once burned down, we STILL CAN BLOOM!! 🙂
“WORDS!”** a poem of refine-ation 2!
Quite out-of-the-blue (has this happened to you?)
“You’ve been SCARRED!” said to me;
Damaged goods? Let me see:
“No! Refined is*** my state!!
And our love – It is GREAT!”
Words can build – or tear down;
Create HAPPY – or-a-frown!!
They’ll-help-kids, IF well chosen,
Or – install – [too bad!] “Frozen!”
As I’ve said (too)-oft’-before:
“WORDS CAN SOMETIMES ‘CAUSE WAR!!”
And-ADJECTIVES are the key,
For they-label – easily!
We have many to choose,
So we surely won’t lose!
I-prefer-a-flavor that’s fine,
One on which we might dine!
Not too spicy or bland –
CAREFUL! (with) WORDS! Understand? fin. <3 <3
* – substitute any name you might like here! For instance: just The Letter J!!
** – of Life or Death!!
*** – could be!! 🙂
